Art Fair/ Lexington

So the dreaded Art Fair was last Tuesday. I know I said I would post pictures but this truly is the first time I have a chance to do so. I was in bed by 7:30pm last night from exhaustion. The Art Fair went really, really well! The parents just LOVED everything. I worked 6 long, hard weeks so it was wonderful to hear such great things. John came and he was able so see the craziness as well. The kids did such a great job! I'm so proud of them! This is the 2 year olds wall. It is so great, I wanted everyone to see it.
This is a bulletin board in my class that I found out I had to redo just days before the Art Fair. It used to have the big red airplane on it. I totally miss the plane but oh well. "Mitzvah" means good deed in Hebrew. The flowers have stickers on them now. The children have to have a good day and if they do they get a mitzvah sticker on their flower. It's like the gold star system.

This is the beach. I didn't take a closer picture because all the pictures wouldn't fit in. But it's my favorite project. The blue is sand. They put glue all over the paper, then put sand on top to dry. The bottom is where they drew their favorite beach activity. We glues seashells on them and made it one big beach. It was alot of fun!

This is one of my walls that I had to fill with art work. It's all my kids art. It came out really amazing!

This is the wall next to my door. It's more of my kids art work. I had more art to put up but the space at the bottom wasn't big enough so I let them doodle with chalk and write their names.
It was really great. Parents got to put little "Sold" signs on their favorite art. The rest of the week was a long one. I'm not quite sure why but it dragged on. Friday I was able to have a 1/2 day of work and John and I decided to head out to Lexington, KY early. We went see my best friend Karie, her husband Reed, and their baby Reynolds for the weekend. It was a great time! Karie made my wedding invitations so I was able to pick those up as well. They are so beautiful!(which you'll see soon enough!) Of course I didn't bring my camera. That would have been a good idea! So, no pictures. It was Karie's birthday Friday and I'm so happy I got to spend it with her. We went to a great Italian restaurant. It was so good I brought my leftovers to work with me today. Reynolds will be 1 April 29th and he he too cute for words! He's so happy and social. John even said he had a great personality! If you know John, he doesn't have much to say about kids in general. I can't wait to see them again!
It's Monday and I have one more full week of work until the end of April. Next week I'm going to Louisiana (YES!!!!!!) and Wednesday my mom will be here!!!!!!! I'm so excited!!! The next 3 weeks will be amazing! I told mom she needs to come more often because as I'm typing now John is on his hands and knees cleaning the bathroom floor. He was mopping not too long ago. I love that man. :) Well, I'm happy I finally was able to blog. I hope everyone has a great week and I'll talk to you soon!
